A Nigerian ICT Technician, Jim Clifford Edward, who impregnated his daughter at Santa maria in Accra, has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court. Edward is said to have defiled the victim at the age of nine until December 26, last year.

The victim age now 14 is currently five months pregnant.

Edward’s wife is said to have abandoned her home after developing some mental ailment. Edward’s wife left home when their last child was two months old.

Charged with defilement and incest, Edward pleaded guilty.

The court presided over by Mrs Ruby Adjeley Quaison sentenced Edward to 10 years on the charge of defilement and five years on the charge of incest. Sentences are to run concurrently.

Handing the down the sentence, the trial judge stated that Edward should have been a father to the victim and not husband.

Edward told the court that he regrets his actions saying “it would not happen again.”

According to Edward they were in a foreign land and he is the only one that his three kids have and sentencing him would bring to the children untold hardship.

He, therefore, pleaded with the court to tamper justice with mercy.

The Prosecution led by Sergeant Opoku Aniagyei, informed the court that the Police would be contacting the Nigerian Embassy in Ghana in order to reach out to a member of the connvict’s family.
